Anyone remember the Startup Matchup? It was Starta’s tribute to Muhammad Ali, and a showdown between 32 Nigerian startups. In each round, users were asked to pretend they were VCs and pick which startup they’d rather invest in. After six rounds of voting and more than 2000 votes, the results are in. Printivo beat Hotels.ng in the finals, and has claimed the title of “Nigeria’s most investible startup”.
Of course, all the goodwill in the world does not translate to money in the bank. Still, I guess it’s nice to know you’d get funded if all the people in the ecosystem came together to form a mega VC-fund.
